12 Do's And Don'ts According To Cristina Yang
ABC News

As an avid "Grey's Anatomy" fan, I've been struggling to love the show as much without everyone's favorite cardiothoracic god. Sometimes I prefer watching the older seasons so that I can be inspired by the force of nature that is Dr. Cristina Yang. I'm a little surprised it's taken me this long to compile a list of of what to do and what not to do according to Cristina, but I finally have. So, if you feel like you need a life coach, look no further!

1. Do: Have some fire. Be unstoppable. Be a force of nature.

2. Don't: Let how overwhelming life is make you shut down.

Life is hard. Sometimes it will feel like one thing after another, and you'll want to curl in the fetal position and never get up. That's the point when you have to get up and start putting the pieces back together.

3. Don't: Just acknowledge your crap; that's not enough.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F13%2F6359876381700493341178839072_cy%2520over%2520come%2520crap.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=324&h=80525f0d31f30165cb48f30a38fe794605a8f8a396b2b7ec31f5cf2478911b31&size=980x&c=321982375 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F13%252F6359876381700493341178839072_cy%252520over%252520come%252520crap.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D324%26h%3D80525f0d31f30165cb48f30a38fe794605a8f8a396b2b7ec31f5cf2478911b31%26size%3D980x%26c%3D321982375%22%7D" expand=1]

4. Do: Stop accepting crap.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F13%2F635987638032071013985587099_cy%2520crap.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=5&h=da90b4661bf1aa050cddaca082b403d517d388cfb607da5acfa571cd5516b79f&size=980x&c=2583530644 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F13%252F635987638032071013985587099_cy%252520crap.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D5%26h%3Dda90b4661bf1aa050cddaca082b403d517d388cfb607da5acfa571cd5516b79f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2583530644%22%7D" expand=1]

5. Do: Demand more than the superficial.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F13%2F6359876177199099581837408434_cy%2520briliant%2520.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=184&h=1a59ff5c9348e87b32e7de05a17152288e48710aa2e5608e7ad583416e40a143&size=980x&c=3610612710 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F13%252F6359876177199099581837408434_cy%252520briliant%252520.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D184%26h%3D1a59ff5c9348e87b32e7de05a17152288e48710aa2e5608e7ad583416e40a143%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3610612710%22%7D" expand=1]

When it comes to friendships, relationships or even just simple compliments, superficial isn't enough. It's time for you to demand more.

6. Don't: Let men bring you down.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F13%2F635987617862196350-1342077811_cy%2520men.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=902&h=bced3877dba60d2ac7caf4a1b3261ed2726a5d8d37894ab11cdce559c1c15399&size=980x&c=4112545137 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F13%252F635987617862196350-1342077811_cy%252520men.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D902%26h%3Dbced3877dba60d2ac7caf4a1b3261ed2726a5d8d37894ab11cdce559c1c15399%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4112545137%22%7D" expand=1]

Chances are you'll have plenty of terrible relationships or interactions, especially in college. This isn't a bad reflection on yourself, and you should never think that it is.

7. Do: Get your priorities straight.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F13%2F635987618055198959-2019304134_cy%2520food.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=112&h=4d404bbb39f6d2396444945e9bf01113f5fea3c6e4d39e3b1454d81d9a6df588&size=980x&c=1457261915 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F13%252F635987618055198959-2019304134_cy%252520food.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D112%26h%3D4d404bbb39f6d2396444945e9bf01113f5fea3c6e4d39e3b1454d81d9a6df588%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1457261915%22%7D" expand=1]

Food > everything.

8. Do: Keep fighting for yourself.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F13%2F635987618635077160-73273844_cy%2520don%2527t%2520give%2520up.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=409&h=0bb00e3bbbb32de093a7a783fea9af6b0d9756e419594fa4722098b756dc3e6a&size=980x&c=1488808955 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F13%252F635987618635077160-73273844_cy%252520don%252527t%252520give%252520up.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D409%26h%3D0bb00e3bbbb32de093a7a783fea9af6b0d9756e419594fa4722098b756dc3e6a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1488808955%22%7D" expand=1]

Maybe you don't see it yet, but you are worth it.

9. Do: Remember that you have a support system.

10. Don't: Throw it all away for a boy.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F13%2F6359876459764841091847579543_cy%2520sun.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=964&h=3364ff9d5d1c6bafadc982b407f1b0b7bee467245417a07390ecf3616dd3bfb5&size=980x&c=1979141637 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F13%252F6359876459764841091847579543_cy%252520sun.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D964%26h%3D3364ff9d5d1c6bafadc982b407f1b0b7bee467245417a07390ecf3616dd3bfb5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1979141637%22%7D" expand=1]

He might seem like the sun today, but will he always be? Will you look back years later and think he was worth it? Focus on yourself first, and the rest will fall into place. You may one day regret investing so much into a boy, but you will never regret investing so much into yourself.

11. Don't: Settle for less than you deserve.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F13%2F635987648040191201-1209052372_cy%2520spoon.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=601&h=2640344f382caeaf67e2e1f072fb607773e68457aec55e5ed16a6b939211601f&size=980x&c=903523131 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F13%252F635987648040191201-1209052372_cy%252520spoon.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D601%26h%3D2640344f382caeaf67e2e1f072fb607773e68457aec55e5ed16a6b939211601f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D903523131%22%7D" expand=1]

If a relationship or friendship feels like less than you want, then it's time to move on. You deserve the best, and you should never settle for less.

12. Do: Make time to have fun with your friends.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F13%2F6359876189343308721954745891_cy%2520have%2520fun.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=666&h=1415c061c7e691be8148750769093f5afc68c7d82ada67a1f75806be4db29358&size=980x&c=4110563171 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F13%252F6359876189343308721954745891_cy%252520have%252520fun.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D666%26h%3D1415c061c7e691be8148750769093f5afc68c7d82ada67a1f75806be4db29358%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4110563171%22%7D" expand=1]

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

61
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

10031

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
